Don't trust her, Mayawati can again ally with the BJP, warned Akhilesh
Bahraich: Uttar Pradesh chief minister, Akhilesh Yadav, is not ready to buy the arguments advanced by Bahujan Samaj Party supremo, Mayawati, against joining hands with the Bhartiya Janta Party in case of a hung assembly.
Addressing an election rally here on Wednesday which was his first on the day, he said, she had tied 'rakhi" on the wrist of a BJP leader and formed a coalition government with the party. So, to ally with the party will not be something new for either of the two. “Don’t go by her words, she will not hesitate to go with the party if the need arises", he warned.
The young chief minister was equally critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “He has created problems for the people, asked them to stand in queues and return empty handed. I have given laptops to them to keep them busy and enlightened", he asserted.
“While I have provided facility to them to occasionally listen to music and songs. He has made their life miserable and sad", Akhilesh charged.
During his address, he also highlighted the developmental measures he had taken for the benefit of the people. Special mention was made of 24-hour power supply to towns and 14 to 16 hours uninterrupted supply to rural areas, jobs to temporary teachers and smart phone schemes.
State chief minister and new Samajwadi Party president also claimed that he had made a balanced development of the state and not discriminated against any caste or creed. He was replying to the charge of BJP leaders that he had done things for the benefit of his own caste,
He reassured the people that whatever had been promised in the manifesto would be fulfilled if the party was voted to power again." No one should doubt it".
Defending his alliance with the Congress which called a union of two youths, Yadav refuted the allegation that he had filled most of the police posts with his own men, turning the police stations into the SP offices.
